Can diabetes patients take tea?

TL;DR: Usually, yes. However, given that diabetes is a serious medical condition, I would always advise double-checking with a licensed medical professional. Our answer is driven from people we know who are diabetic who drink tea. It helps quench thirst and maintain their appetite (monitoring your weight and food habits is very important for diabetic people) which is why they consume it. It is also rich in antioxidants and other beneficial minerals. It’s important to note that these benefits are common across all varieties of tea. Essentially consuming anything with zero sugar content is permissible when you have diabetes.

What is better, green tea dip bags or leaves of green tea?

Loose Leaf Tea is almost always better for ALL kinds of tea — teabags usually contain low-grades of tea that are neither as flavorful, nor as beneficial in terms of nutrients and thereby health, etc. Particularly with Green Tea, some of the best/most expensive variants in the world come from Darjeeling, West Bengal, India.

Green tea is also primarily helpful for physical health and living, not mental or neurological disorders.

What are the health benefits of having a banana and green tea for breakfast?

We hope you’re not implying that there is some secret benefit associated with having Bananas alongside Green Tea. If you are, let us be the first to dispel that notion for you. Green tea and bananas are individually healthy and can be consumed at breakfast (since both bananas and teas are associated as “healthy” and a “breakfast” food). Green tea has numerous health benefits that have been detailed extensively (lots of great Antioxidants + organic compounds, improves metabolic activity, etc.) and we highly recommend brewing it using some high-quality loose leaves. As any tea lover knows, teabags depress the taste, consistency and body of green teas the most and there is a world of a difference between the brew of...
